Giving back to the communities we serve has been a part of Ledcor’s culture since we all worked out of one shop in central Alberta. Today, 66 years later, Ledcor and its employees are still committed to enhancing our local communities by making them better places to live and work.
In 2013 we demonstrated that commitment through individual generosity and corporate donations, investing over $2.9 million in over 100 charities across North America.
Guided by a belief that healthy children build strong families and communities, a key pillar of our community giving is support for pediatric medical facilities and critical illness initiatives, both through corporate donations and our annual employee giving program.
This year, in communities throughout our operations, recipient organizations included 17 children’s hospitals from Hawaii to Newfoundland and San Diego to Yellowknife. We also donated to various Make-A-Wish chapters, local child health charities such as Canuck Place Hospice, Little Warriors, Glenrose Rehabilitation Hospital, and Nevada Blind Children’s Foundation, and disease specific causes such as JDRF, Crohn’s and Colitis, and Autism.
Support was also given to a number of front-line community services organizations including food banks across Canada, local United Way chapters, and Covenant House in Vancouver.
